Camp Cummer 2011

May

16

We are anticipating another creative and fun summer at The Cummer for our campers. All of the educators are working on a dynamic curriculum that includes drawing, painting, clay, printmaking and collage. We are going to spend time in the galleries learning about the Cummer Fifty Favorites, the new Silk Road exhibition, and the Neighborhood as Art.

Campers will spend time in the gardens exploring the flora that abounds in the summertime and use what they find to inspire their art making.  We plan to produce beautiful landscape paintings of the gardens, black and white prints of leaves and flowers, clay shoes and boxes, pop-up books, color studies in abstract painting, and more. All of the educators can’t wait to push up our sleeves and spend the summer creating with campers.

One-week sessions run from June 13th through July 22nd (no camp July 4th through 8th)  for rising 1st-6th grades. Middle School camp is July 25th through 29th. Each week costs &180 for members and $195 for non-members. All art materials are provided. Students must bring their own lunch. If you are interested in enrolling in a session or two this summer, call Art Connections at 355-0630.
